Effective Training – Keeping it Simple – Key Issues

by Hank Williams

This guide explores the process of creating the conditions for learning.

The first half of the guide focuses on simplicity in terms of the trainer’s role and the design of learning events. So if you are interested in designing learning events with depth and resonance this guide will interest you.

The second half focuses on the management of the relationship between the trainer, their material and the learner and on the ways that these key relationships influence the learning environment.

It is most relevant to experienced trainers who work in the area of skills development rather than knowledge transfer
